The Green Bay Packers do not want this to be the Last Dance for two of their most prominent members of the team that are largely responsible for their success over the years.
According to Rapoport, Rodgers went into this season as though this was going to be “The Last Dance” with the franchise, but nobody saw that him and the front office having a much better relationship over the past few months that has changed everyone’s thinking.
A few days ago, Rodgers spoke on his future.
“It won’t be something where I’ll drag it out for months and months,” Rodgers said, via ESPN.com.
“I’m not going to hold the team back from anything,” Rodgers said. “And once I commit — and if it’s committing to move forward here — it will be a quick decision.”
On top of that news, Ian Rapoport added that the team is showing signs that they will use the franchise tag on WR Davante Adams this offseason.
During the summer, talks of an extension broke off and have not resumed. Adams was seeking to become the NFL’s highest-paid wide receiver, both sides have a major disagreement on which player to use as the barometer. His camp points to the two-year, $54 million deal Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins signed while the front office wants to use the three-year, $66 million extension the Falcons gave WR Julio Jones with two years left is a better template.
The franchise tag for Adams would be just over $20 million in 2022.
Adams has been targeted 162 times and has 117 catches, leading the Packers with 1,498 yards (93.6 ypg) while also scoring 11 touchdowns this season.
Rodgers has completed 68.6% of his passes for 3,977 yards with 35 touchdowns against only four interceptions this season.
